Geotechnical Engineering for Mine Waste Storage Facilities

Geotechnical Engineering for Mine Waste Storage Facilities Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The book is a comprehensive treatment of the application of geotechnical engineering to site selection, site exploration, design, operation and closure of mine waste storage facilities.

It has been developed from the official mining industry guide to the design and operation of tailings and waste rock storage facilities in South Africa, and also from a series of post graduate courses that have been taught at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg for many years. The level and content are suitable as a technical source and reference for practising engineers engaged both in the design and operational management of mine waste storage facilities and for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students. The thirteen chapters follow the sequence of the life cycle of a waste storage facility and also consider the use of mine waste as a construction material. The text is liberally illustrated by both line drawings and photographs, and the theoretical passages are supported by typical test results, worked examples and carefully analysed case histories.

Book News Annotation:

This text/reference on mine waste storage facilities delves into geotechnical engineering techniques related to design, operation, and closure of facilities. It is suitable as a technical reference for civil engineers in design and operational management of mine waste storage facilities, and for senior undergraduate and graduate students. Chapters follow the life cycle of a facility, from site selection through environmental and engineering characteristics of mine waste, strength testing, measuring permeability, mechanics of compaction, and methods for constructing impounding dykes and water control. There is also background material on fundamentals of geotechnical engineering for those without a civil engineering background. The book includes test results, case histories, numerous b&w photos, and a list of symbols. Blight is affiliated with the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa.

Synopsis:

The book is a comprehensive treatment of the application of geotechnical engineering to site selection, site exploration, design, operation and closure of mine waste storage facilities.

The level and content are suitable as a technical source and reference for practising engineers engaged both in the design and operational management of mine waste storage facilities and for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students. The thirteen chapters follow the sequence of the life cycle of a waste storage facility (characterization, site selection, geotechnical exploration, environmental aspects, testing and compaction) and also consider the use of mine waste as a construction material.

The text is liberally illustrated by both line drawings and photographs, and the theoretical passages are supported by typical test results, worked examples and carefully analysed case histories.
